Protection of beasts is the Beastly Boys’ business and this time they are back on an adventure that takes them right into the deepest parts of the jungle as they search for the legendary jungle vampire. Can they reach it before the wicked Baron Marackai gets his flying machine working and finds it first? There’s trickery at every turn but the Beastly Boys and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Beasts are a force to be reckoned with.

An Awfully Beastly Buiness: Jungle Vampire by Beastly Boys

The fourth title in this major new adventure-mystery series about a sanctuary for dragons, ogres, werewolves and other fantastical creatures.

Ulf is on a mission to discover a legendary jungle vampire said to live in an ancient tribal burial ground in the heart of the Amazon jungle. Baron Marackai wants to slay the beast for money. Ulf encounters lots of jungle creatures before finally encountering the vampire in the blood-red heart of the jungle.


A good choice for fantasy fans and youngsters with short attention spans. -- School Library Journal

About the Author

Beastly Boys

The Beastly Boys are Matthew Morgan, David Sinden and Guy Macdonald, best friends from childhood. All have worked in publishing, Matthew Morgan and David Sinden are Matt and Dave, the authors of the hugely successful YUCK series. All three live in Kent.

The authors, all in their early 30’s, who were at the same primary schools together in Kent, have given up full-time employment to write the books. They spent months hiding away at a remote location in Cornwall to finish the books.

Dave originally came up with title An Awfully Beastly Business then we all hit upon the idea fir The Royal society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Beasts, RSPCB, while we were living together in a house in London.

We chose to write together because we all found it much more fun than writing on our own. We’ve been to school together, lived together and worked on many different projects, and this friendship has given us an honest appreciation of our individual and team strengths. We know each other inside out, and we all shared a common vision from the start. We find the books benefit from needing to please all three of us all the time, so the stories are full of ideas.” - Beastly Boy
